IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 5 results.
The overall objective of the project is the advancement of fuel cells in transportation applications. To ensure a comprehensive penetration of the automotive market, the focus will be laid on the cost-reduction potential of fuel cell components and systems including hydrogen storage, the hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell vehicles in public transportation as well as fuel cell powered utility vehicles.
The main objective of Annex 33 “Stationary Applications” is to identify potential markets and possible fuels for fuel cells.
Task 31 is a research and development oriented Task with the objective to contribute to the identification and development of techniques and materials to reduce the cost and improve the durability of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs).
The aim of Annex 35 is the information exchange on the status and new developments of portable fuel cell systems and comprises the development and manufacture of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) all the way through to system components such as electronic converters or gas supply units. In addition the setup and configuration of hybridized systems and the key topics of secure operation, codes and standards are of interest.
The main goal of the IEA Advanced Fuel Cells programme is to enhance the technology development of key components and systems of fuel cells; furthermore to prepare the market implementation of fuel cells by analysis/development of the necessary policy frame work (incl. necessary instruments) and the elimination of existing barriers.
